7:14 am
was put down about the same time. contra costa animal services director beth ward told the bay area news group this is especially heartbreaking because the shelter was working with a rescue organization to help save barbie. in a statement, it reads in part here, while we can not undo this terrible mistake, we will learn from it and improve our efforts to save as many lives as possible. some animal activists, including no kill contra costa, have expressed concern over this case. the group advocates for no-kill policy for the animal services shelter. the shelter said this year about 80% of animals that were brought to the county shelter made it out alive, and that's up about 45% in 2011. still though many questions into what happened. more also about the communications mishap. we have reached out to the

7:17 am
i think tomorrow on the friday before the 4th you might notice. i zoomed in my maps to the south bay to check out 680 near hoff stedder to make sure that congress fire hasn't affected traffic. it hasn't. northbound 101, the typical commute on 101 from capitol expressway past 880 is slow. 287 and 17. so it looks like a slightly slow and kind of normal-ish commute in the valley. speaking of the fourth of july, steve. >> yes? >> growing up in san francisco, you know that lots of times there was a fireworks show scheduled, but then the fog came in and you couldn't see it. >> i think that's exactly what's going to happen. the only relief would be the fog will be high enough, sal. that would be it. >> ic. >> it's going to be foggy. we also have, i think, a's fireworks saturday night. that should be okay. by the time we get into the weekend, there is going to be lower pressure moving into the north. that's going to push it farther inland. they could use it. there are 12 fires burning in

7:20 am

♪ gonna soak up the sun i'm gonna tell every♪. >> this used to be pam cook and i in our earlier days soaking up the sun, laying out by the beach or the pool.
7:46 am
a lot of people like getting a little bit of a golden glow or a nice deep dark tan in the summer months. however, too much sun we now know can be harmful. it certainly increases your risk of skin cancer. this summer you could eat your way to a healthier tan. pam cook back in the studio to explain how we can do this. >> yes. obviously, very attracted to this story. i am like you. i loved to soak up the sun. if you don't want to risk the sun or the tanning bed or the look of the spray tan or those bronzers that rub off on your clothing, head to the grocery store for help with your tan this summer. carrots, butternut squash, and sweet potatoes contain high amounts of beta carotene. that is then converted by the body into vitamin a. both beta carotene and vitamin a can enhance the pigment of your skin, giving you more of a golden glow. now, doctors say tomatoes and kale have the same similar effects. not just on your tan though. they also help your overall
7:47 am
skin health. doctors say vitamin a in kale helps prevent skin diseases and repairs dry and damaged skin, especially from damage due to sun exposure. kale also has a good dose of vitamin c. in fact, nutritionists say it has just as much as citrus fruit. this is why kale is on the list of what nutritionists call super foods. it contains a high dose also of vitamin k, which can help you get rid of skin discolorations, such as dark circles under your eyes. i learned from the health food store, you know, your whole foods or places like that have a good staffed department. they know a lot. they are trained. they are up on this kind of thing. so you can ask them all kinds of things that are concerned about. you can remedy a lot of things with food. >> we talked about the awareness. when we were kids, nobody did sunscreen. these days, your children, their daughters, they are slathered up? >> exactly.
7:48 am
we were just talking about it on the facebook mention, too. a really, really important fact. a lot of people forget or they just, you know, they get lazy or you don't know, 15 minutes at least before you go out in the sun. otherwise, your sunscreen doesn't really have nearly the impact that it would have. so you have it to put it on early. >> good to know. >> all right. thank you. time is 7:48. guess what? steph curry's wife ayesha curry is dishing out delivery. according to tech crunch, the wife of nba all-star steph curry has a new food delivery start-up company called gather. it will deliver ingredients and recipes directly to your door every week. the recipes will be similar to what ayesha cooks at home, including home cooked baby food. ayesha made the announcement in a tweet that leads you to the gathers home page. the company isn't open for business just yet. but if you sign up, you can be

on their waiting list. back to that breaking news we have been bringing you from washington, d.c. officials at joint base andrews just gave the all-clear for the rest of the base, except for the air force hospital where an active shooter was reported this morning. officials have not said if anyone was hurt or any shots were actually fired. officials did say again that an active shooter drill was set at the base, but that the call reportedly came in before the drill started. we know the vice president joe biden was scheduled to fly out of the base for ohio this afternoon. we are monitoring the situation. we will bring you updates as we get them. the lockdown order has been lifted on the base except for that one hospital to be involved. we are working to get information on whether or not any shots have been fired or if anybody was hurt. it seems to be a bit of a positive update. >> all right. 7:49. sal is right over there watching the commute. the toll plaza in particular, right? >> yeah, because when the toll plaza gets better, that means the rest of the commutes may follow.
7:50 am
let's look at that for you right now. you can see traffic is moving along the commute here on 880 to the toll plaza. it's improving. that's the first sign. this is a 20-minute delay. there are no major problems getting into san francisco. this is now -- we don't have 880. i put it in by accident. i will tell you, in fact i can show you on the maps instead, that 880 traffic is going to be busy as you drive southbound 880 from 238 and northbound is a little bit slow from about 238 up to the cal seem. so that's kind of typical as you drive through. you notice 580 traffic is not bad through livermore and 880 traffic gets better after union city. we are beginning to see, steve, as we bring you in here, a little bit of a better commute by tomorrow on the friday before the fourth of july. i have a feeling a lot of people will be up at the lake or whatever they're going. i am thinking of driving up to lake tahoe. do you think it will be that
7:51 am
bad? my microphone? >> that old slip down mic trick. >> i will try to fix it. >> all right. >> we will head back to steve. first though a woman playing baseball. next, her rare spot on a bay area team, and how she hopes to inspire others.
7:52 am
7:53 am
back to weather. a lot of people looking ahead for the weekend, steve? >> well, depends where you are.
7:54 am
most locations will cool down on the weekend. not the coast and bay, but inland will. today it will be warm to hot. coast and bay i don't see any change. too much fog. too much in the way of cold temperatures. temperatures will be chilly there. there are 12 fires currently burning in the state of california here. there is some pretty hot numbers. certainly out to the valley with lots of 101s. humidity low. there will be cooler temps starting saturday and for sure sunday into monday. so that will help a little bit. lots of low clouds and fog out there and the low cloud deck made a good push this morning. giants-a's tonight mostly sunny. 63 at game time. west wind 20 miles per hour. bodega bay 28. so they are running below. san francisco buoy very cold. 51 monterey. 52. when you get water temps that cold and 90s and 100s inland, the fog is rearing to go.
7:55 am
sometimes it's held in check by a dome of high pressure. that's what we have. still there. bodega bay south. i think it will burn off sooner. inland temps which cooled off for many yesterday will warm up a bit. mid-to-upper 90s to 100s if you are inland. low 50s morgan hill to gilroy. 59 campbell, santa clara and cupertino in there as well. they are beginning to warm up. cold foggy on the monterey peninsula. up in the sierra warm to hot. 27 tucson. -- 72 in tucson. the humidity is higher in arizona than the deep south this morning. that's that monsoon moisture. some could work its way into southern california. i don't think the parameters are right to take it up to the sierra nevada. so cool coast. hot inland. at least for today. then i think after today we will start to see cooler weather spill in for everybody over the holiday weekend.
7:56 am
if you are heading up to the sierra, warm to hot today and friday. mostly sunny. cooler sunday and monday. mostly sunny. the fog will be lifted and rearing to go as we head into the next couple of days. 50s, 60s, 70s, then 80s, 90s, and 100s. how about that? if you travel around the bay, just watch your car thermometer. 70s to 90s to upper 90s to 100. santa clara valley 90s. 50s on the coast. 60s, 70s, or low 80s. about the same tomorrow and then cooler inland on the weekend. >> steve, thank you. >> you're welcome. 7:56. today the 75th marin county fair kicks off. a big line-up of music, fun, exhibits, and food. the fair features more than 800 categories and thousands of exhibits. there will be several musical performances over the next couple of days. tonight the wallflowers. tomorrow kook & the gange. sheila e. on saturday.

8:01 am
let's recap the breaking news we have been following. officials at joint base andrews are still working what they're calling an active shooter situation at an air force hospital on that base. just minutes ago the all-clear was given for the rest of the base. the hospital, however, is still under some scrutiny. this incident was reported two hours ago. we have been following it since that time on "mornings on 2". at this point we haven't received any official word whether anyone was hurt. officials do, however, confirm an active shooter drill was scheduled today for the base, and this call about what appears to be the real thing, if you will, came in before that drill had a chance to begin. now, vice president joe biden was scheduled to fly out of that base this afternoon for a trip to ohio. we don't know yet if this situation will delay or even cancel that trip. we'll keep an eye on everything, monitoring the situation, and bring you updates as they become available. well, in other news this morning, a 21-year-old man is in the hospital with life-
8:02 am
threatening injuries. he was randomly stabbed inside a santa rosa movie theater. >> police were able to arrest the suspect shortly after the attack. alex savidge is live in santa rosa. alex, police are trying to figure out if this stabbing is connected to another random stabbing in the city a few days ago? >> reporter: right. police this morning are trying to figure out if the man they now have in custody is the same person responsible for two random stabbings just within a matter of days all here in downtown santa rosa. the latest attack, it was unprovoked according to authorities, and it happened here inside the roxy theater right in downtown santa rosa. it was just after 4:00 this afternoon. it was during a showing of the movie the shallows. a man came up behind a movie goer and stabbed the man in the throat and the chest. he tossed the knife in a trash can outside of the theater and
8:03 am
then calmly walked out of the building. officers though were able to catch up with him and they arrested him just a short distance away, not far from the movie theater. and this morning police are now trying to figure out if the attacker from the movie theater yesterday may be the same person who stabbed a homeless man to death earlier this week. in that case, the victim was stabbed at least 50 times early monday morning as he slept in a doorway. also here in the downtown santa rosa area. and a short time ago we talked with a man who told us he knows the victim in monday's stabbing. >> i hope they figure out if it was the correct person. i knew him. that dude was awesome. he was always smiling. super nice guy. always in a really good mood. >> reporter: now, police have not identified the 23-year-old man that they now have in custody in connection with the stabbing at the theater nor have they identified the young
8:04 am
man who they say was stabbed. that man who was stabbed at random here inside the roxy theater, a 21-year-old man. at last check he is hospitalized with life- threatening injuries. we are working to get an update on the victim's condition and the identity and more information on the man police now have in custody. again he is being questioned, it would seem, in connection with the stabbing here at the theater and then also the stabbing of the homeless man nearby just a few blocks away here in downtown santa rosa earlier this week. >> thank you. time is 8:04. should we talk to steve? find out about the weather? >> i think so. >> people have big plans. >> sunny for some. cool for others. >> yeah. >> those water temps really make a huge difference. some areas are sunny, nice. others warm to hot. others are just cold, freezing. if you have been stuck in the fog, a tough couple of days. santa rosa low-mid 80s.
8:05 am
warmer east san jose and santa clara valley. leanne says it's cold. how cold is it, leanne? i swear i saw a seagull in a ski jacket. [ applause ] . >> there you go. i saw one with a scarf on by the marina. leanne with the comedy on your thursday. it is cold. and when the water temps are 48- 51, that is darn cold, and that keeps very cold conditions coast and in the city. not much of a breeze. that means inland temps are going to bump up. high pressure, i swear, just one little day. that's all it takes here. 50s. 50s. upper 50s. some in the 60s here. look for the fog to win out. as a weak system moves into the north, that will lift the fog bank into the weekend. today warm to hot for some. cold for others. sal, how are things? >> things are getting a little better, steve. we are seeing a little bit of improvement out there. let's start out with the macarthur maze and start there with the traffic not looking too bad. driving through from eastshore freeway, things are getting a little bit better. and when you get to the bay
8:06 am
bridge toll plaza you're seeing the traffic is beginning to thin out, and that -- like we said, this is going to be a transition day. by tomorrow at this time we will see some light traffic when people try to make this fourth of july weekend, since it comes on a monday especially, try to make it a four-day weekend. why not? can you do it? people are. this is 580 westbound. it looks good. here is a sign things are better than normal. 880 is slow at 238, but it's not quite as bad as it is driving to fremont. not great traffic, but better than normal. 8:06. back to the desk. we have some new pictures to show you, new information this morning about the istanbul terror attack. memorial services were held earlier today for five people killed in the bombings. four of the victims, they were from one family from saudi arabia. the number of people who were killed, that number has risen to 43 today. in the meantime, turkish authorities identified the nationalities of the three
8:07 am
suicide bombers. they were from russia, uzbekistan and kyrgyzstan. they believe a chechen terrorist, they planned that airport attack. now, both turkey and the u.s., they are lashing out against isis. >> they are. doug luzader reports from washington that turkish special forces this morning carried out raids against suspected isis mbers. >> reporter: police in turkey say that they have made more than a dozen arrests in connection to those airport attacks that left more than 40 dead. isis, meantime, may have suffered some battlefield losses, but it is hardly defeated. police in turkey conduct raids overnight as they search f anyone who may have been involved in the deadly istanbul airport attack. some appeared to be taken into custody as turkey is drawn more deeply into a conflict with isis or the islamic state.
8:08 am
there were iraq airstrikes against fleeing isis vehicles in iraq killing hundreds of fighters. president obama at a summit of north american leaders suggested isis or isil, as he says, was on the run. >> our collation is on the offensive across iraq, syria, and we will destroy the terrorist group isil. >> [ applause ] >> we will destroy them. >> reporter: and while it's true that the isis dream of a self-governed caliphate in iraq and syria seems farfetched given one battlefield loss after another, the group can still deliver a punch. isis claimed credit for the brussels attack back in march, and all of this is fueling donald trump's attacks on both obama and hillary clinton. >> you know why they are taking our youth? because they look like they are winning. we have to give them a big fat ugly defeat. >> [cheers and applause]. >> reporter: and the new fox news poll confirms public unease. 84% of registered voters say they are nervous now about our
8:09 am
ability to prevent a terrorist attack. and that same poll asked the question, who is winning the war on terror? the u.s. and its allies, or the terrorists? the public is just about evenly split on that question. in washington, doug luzader, fox news. 8:09. new this morning out the oakland an early morning police chase that ended with a chp cruiser slamming into three parked cars. watch video from the scene of that crash near macarthur avenue. the cruiser hit a fire hydrant, light pole and three parked cars before coming to rest on a sidewalk next to a building. it began on 580 near dublin and ended up on city streets in oakland. during the chase the passenger in the suspect vehicle began spray a fire extinguisher at them. 8:09. we are tracking the wildfires in california. in 23 minutes, the latest on the fire in the sierra

8:31 am
where the report originated. >> remember we had been reporting that officials had said they, in fact, were not able to say if anybody had been hurt. of course, we also knew early on that an active shooter drill was scheduled for today on that same base. so again the headline at this hour here at 8:31 more than two hours after we started covering this story the situation appears to be resolved, according to the "associated press." officials say there is no active shooter there at joint base andrews. certainly a relief. >> yeah. time is 8:31. let's check our weather. steve paulson is right over there in his office. >> . >> looks like the fog is burning off. an interesting pattern today. yesterday more low clouds and widespread. today it took a path of least resistance. some holes in the clouds. didn't make it as far for some. it snaked its way up the napa side and worked up to

calistoga. that's burning off now and temperatures will start off anywhere from the 50s and will warm up a little bit and tonight mostly sunny for the giants and the a's. 63 west wind at 20 miles per hour. should be a little better than last night. 38 bodega bay. 51 san francisco buoy. 51 monterey. very, very cold. so the fog has no problem forming as long as there is a westerly component. there is. much it's much less today than yesterday. it was very strong for some yesterday. not so bad today. 50s to 60s. north bay temps a lot of 40s. bodega bay at 49 degrees. quite cold for some on the coast. cold and foggy to cool coast and bay. all right. 8:32. looks like you have seen a little bit of lighter traffic is what you're telling me? >> yeah, slowly improving. i think if you are on the road tonight, this evening for the afternoon commute, a combination of people coming home from work and people
8:33 am
leaving the bay area. that makes for more traffic and unusual traffic patterns. san mateo is moderately heavy to the high-rise. it is heavy over to the peninsula. at the bay bridge toll plaza we have seen some improvement, especially if you are driving in on 880 and you have fast track. this is about a 10 to 15-minute delay before the bridge. the south bay continues to have slow traffic. northbound 101 is slow. 280 and 85 slow into the valley. 8:33. let's go back to the desk. all right. thank you. at 8:33 a terrifying accident that happened in san jose. fireworks injured a woman. >> right. witnesses say someone threw fireworks at the woman and her family as they were walking home. ktvu's janine de la vega tells us what happened and how law enforcement is being stepped up for the upcoming fourth of july. >> reporter: this was an awful situation. the woman is suffering from burns. this is exactly what police and firefighters are trying to prevent. they are actually going to be
8:34 am
targeting neighborhoods where there has been problems before. this happened on tuesday night. the woman was walking home from the park with her young son and his on remington way near quinnby when a loud explosion went off. someone threw a firework at the woman. >> i feel like fourth of july is not going to be fun because i don't know if they are, like, driving around doing this on purpose. >> we have developed teams out of the patrol division that are specifically targeting fireworks violations. they are going out into the community. any time a call comes out regarding any type of fireworks violation, they are the ones that are deployed and making contact with the citizens. >> reporter: starting on friday, police will step up patrols, especially in parks, schools, and neighborhoods where people like to put on illegal fireworks shows. this year the fines have increased to $500 all the way up to $1,000.
8:35 am
more city officials such as code enforcement officers and park rangers are able to cite violators as well. they know they are going to be over we willed -- overwhelmed with calls. a nfl player who almost lost his hand is speaking out in a new psa. >> fourth of july i lit up a firework. thought i could throw it away real quick. in a split second it blew off my hand right there. >> that's jason pierre-paul of the new york giants. he lost parts of several fingers and damaged his right hand in that explosion last year. almost ended his playing career. that psa was released by the u.s. consumer products safety commission. at the end of it pierre-paul urges fans to leave the fireworks to the professionals. however, if you do decide to use fireworks this holiday weekend the consumer products

8:37 am
canyons. however, the growth was not explosive. in fact, the latest numbers are under 1,300 acres have burned. about 12% containment. the good news is not a whole lot of explosive growth, but there is some concern. daniel joining me from calfire. we understand the fire is burning away from both forrest hill and georgetown right now. what are you seeing fire behavior wise? >> extremely dry conditions. in this elevation we have pockets of dead trees. that's allowing for a very aggressive fire. now, with triple-digit temperatures, humidity in the teens and gusty winds, that's allowing this fire to continue to be active and difficult to fight this specific one, especially because where it's burning is very remote. access there is challenging. >> reporter: to give you a quick reference point, if forrest hill is here and georgetown is here, this is where the fire is burning. it's in a northeasterly direction. it's burning away from the major populated areas, but there are still homes out this
8:38 am
way. that is one of the concerns as they move forward into day 3 of this fight against the fire. there is a community meeting tonight around 7:00. more information on that will be coming out later today. in georgetown on day three of the trail hide fire, mike tessel. time is 8:38. two deaths blamed on a big wildfire near san diego. the bodies were found yesterday afternoon in a rural part hit by flames. >> it was heart-wrenching. i haven't processed it yet. i am going to go home and cry my eyes out. i cried a little bit with the girls. the image is burned in my retinas. >> the wildfire started week and a half ago. 7600 acres have burned. it is now 97% contained. volunteers have been out there looking for this particular couple. they disappeared ten days ago. we are learning new details about two bay area families involved in a terrible crash on interstate 5 tuesday morning. one that killed two women and four children. a relative of the families talked with us about what

8:40 am
suspects insists his client is not in a gang. >> we have absolutely no information that he's in a gang and you saw him in the courtroom. there is no tattoos on him. he is a 17-year-old high school student. his predicament is very serious and he understands that, and he is scared about what's going on. >> now, a third defendant is charged with being an accessory after the fact. authorities are still looking for a fourth suspect. the victim 17-year-old edwin guerra was attacked with a machete and also shot to death. another student was also slashed and shot, but survived reportedly by playing dead. activists rallied outside the state building in san francisco yesterday in a new push to have the judge in the brock turner case removed from the bench. >> fire judge persky! fire judge persky! >> they say they are disgusted with the judge's handling of the brock turner case. they want him gone.
8:41 am
the group hand delivered a petition with 1.2 million signatures asking for judge persky's removal to the california commission on judicial performance. >> i would like to say that by discrediting the victim and putting the privilege of the perpetrator as a factor in defining the outcome of a trial you show all survivors their experiences do not matter. >> the judge has faced mounting criticism for sentencing former stanford swimmer brock turner to six months in jail. turner was found guilty of sexual assaulting an unconscious woman behind a dumpster. a former hospital technician was sentenced to a year in jail in a sexual battery case. 57-year-old robert lastinger was apnea these yeah technician. he was fired after nurses told management he had been touching patients inappropriately while sedated. he pled no contest to sexual battery charges, so the case never went to trial. in addition to a year in jail,
8:42 am
he was also given three years probation and he has to register as a sex offender. some say the judge went easy on lastinger. they are comparing this to the brock turner case. >> this is a gift. it's a gift to this defendant. it's a gift to stanford university. as you will find, there will be a connection. there must be a connection between stanford university here and perhaps even the district attorney's office and it's something we need to look into. >> with these types of charges, the way that the law is written is that the court could have given him a single day in the county jail. there is really no minimum the court could have given. >> prosecutors say they were hoping the judge would send him to jail immediately, but he was given three weeks to get his affairs in order. he has to surroundedder by july 23rd. time is 8:42. new this morning in afghanistan taliban suicide bombers attacked a convoy of buses

8:51 am
bay freeways, 101 and 280 and 85 are still slow. now at 8:50 let's go to steve. >> thank you, sal. and what we have is some fog burning off a little sooner here. there was a little bit more of a cooler push yesterday. so today inland will warm up. should see a little more sun for some closer to the bay. even though the water temps are really cold, it's going to be hard pressed to warm up that much on the coast. fog's not going anywhere. it will be back. fire danger continues to be very, very high in the state of california, as you might imagine. we have 12 fires currently. near 100 inland. humidity is low. it does look cooler. that's the best news i can give firefighters as we head into the weekend. today and tomorrow about the same, but then cooler saturday and sunday. cat smith's headed to a wedding this weekend. i need your hairspray report. i would prepare to use extra hold if that wedding is on saturday. depends where you are, of course. the breeze will pick up in the weekend as a system digs into the pacific northwest. that will lower our heights and

8:53 am
also maybe into las vegas. i don't think it will make it to the sierra. that system coming in will push it to the south and east. cool coast. hot inland today. it looks like the weekend we will see a little more fog. so a cooler pattern even for those well inland. sometimes it's tough to break this down this time of the year late in june and july. if the sierra nevada, if you are heading up in direction, good luck getting up there. mostly sunny. looks cooler as well on sunday into monday. thunderstorms very close, but it doesn't look like they will make it. just off to the east and south. the fog will make it though. it will be back tonight, tomorrow, and make a good push over the weekend. 50s to 100s. if you are inland, it's hot. the coast and bay cold to cool to nice. 60s, 70s, 80s, upper 90s. even in the santa clara valley as well. san jose warmer. saratoga, san mateo 76, palo alto 80, but 59 d.c. and pacifica. cold and foggy there. not much change friday. cooler into the weekend. dave. >> all right. got it. thank you. >> you bet. i want to give you an
